I'm trying to add a comment to a post I read on blogger.com. Here is the post: http://hacksoflife.blogspot.com/2006/01/iswindowvisible-can-be-deceiving.html#comment-form

I try to add the comment using the OpenID URL https://openid.stackexchange.com/, but it fails. Here is what it says when I use that URL:

Do you wish to share your information with www.blogger.com?

I click confirm and then it brings me back to the blogger.com page where it says "Your OpenID credentials could not be verified."

I don't know why this is happening. My normal browser is Firefox, but I also tried in a virtual machine using Internet Explorer. It's the same in both. I also tried the URLs that are given on the Stack Exchange page, but they don't work either.

<link rel="openid2.provider" href="https://openid.stackexchange.com/openid/provider">
<link rel="openid2.local_id" href="https://openid.stackexchange.com/user/12345-edited"> 

How do I post comments to blogger.com using my Stack Exchange OpenID?

This is super annoying. On my StackExchange OpenID page I can see these similar records for Authenticating to blogger.com, yet on the person's blog it says "Your OpenID credentials could not be verified". I don't want to use social media accounts to validate on public blog sites, that just feels wrong. –  Davos Jan 23 '13 at 0:18

That relying party appears to be failing OpenId discovery pretty spectacularly. Not much I can do from this end, unfortunately. -ing this accordingly.

Would you mind sending an official-ish email to blogger with the details so they are at least aware of it? Sending one as a user is likely to get them to blame stackexchange, rather than looking into it further. –  Adam Davis Mar 2 '12 at 0:46

I disagree. I'm trying to get spring-security to accept OpenID for a project, testing with my stackexchange OpenID. If I read section 11.2 of the OpenID 2.0 spec (openid.net/specs/openid-authentication-2_0.html) correctly, the XRDS document found after applying discovery to the claimed ID (openid.stackexchange.com/user/11111-1111....) should contain a <Type>.../signon</Type> service element. It does not, and I think this is why spring-security rejects it. My Google ID is accepted, so my setup can't be completely wrong. ;) And I guess blogspot rejects them for the same reason. –  user1252434 Jan 14 '13 at 10:15
